AFB has joined with a broad coalition of disability rights organizations and auto and motorcycle manufacturers, suppliers, repairers, and more in urging prompt action on the US Senate's version of autonomous vehicle legislation, AV START Act (S. 1885).

This groundbreaking bipartisan bill includes many specific provisions drafted by AFB and our partners that make the Senate's approach dramatically superior to the House bill. Among other key components, the Senate bill would:

  • Establish a working group to develop best practices in the design and deployment of highly automated vehicles to ensure the accessibility of user interface controls for autonomous vehicles, along with physical accessibility for individuals with motor impairments
  • Ensure that drivers' licensing requirements cannot discriminate on the basis of disability

The legislation does not create new federal regulations but a process for tackling issues. Learn more about the AV START Act.

The AV START Act, S. 1885, contains meaningful provisions to turn the promise of driverless cars into a technical and legal reality.

We support S. 1885, and we urge the Senate to take prompt action on the measure. As the House moves to reconcile the bills, please urge your legislators to support the Senate's version of the AV START Act.

Re: Ask Your Senator to Support the Autonomous Vehicle Bill AV START

My boyfriend and I broke up 2 weeks ago. he started acting strange, he was ignoring all of my calls and won’t speak to me at all, i wanted us to be back together forever and work through things as a couple. I just could not picture my life without him. i felt so rejected when i discovered that he was cheating on me. it made me go crazy because i took him as the love of my life, my best friend, my soul mate, after making some research i found Dr Abaka on the net that he can restore broken relationship and i gave it a try, after using his love spell, my boyfriend came back and since then I definitely believe Dr Abaka is real, I must admit, the result was perfect, wonderful, this caster Dr Abaka is real. you can email him: or call +2349063230051/ for urgent help.
